I magine the scene. A 15-year-old girl arrives at a local bus station in East Yorkshire at 9.30pm only to see, in some alarm, that the doors of her last bus home are closing. As the driver gradually begins to pull out of the stand, she jumps in front of it, begging him to open the door. He refuses and indicates for her to get out of his way, hooting the horn loudly. In tears, she continues to entreat him but is rebuffed.
